decorate / my gallery wall

A little while back I posted about affordable art and shared some art prints I had my eye on. Well friends, I bought a stack of Ribba frames from Ikea about six weeks ago and they finally made it to my living room wall. Only a couple prints are permanent (the rest are probably placeholders until I can buy all the prints), and I’ll be buying prints as my budget allows.

Clockwise from top left:
1. grey dog in boots—This is a card my mom sent me (the set of note cards is from Rifle Paper Co.)
2. diy quote—I love this Julia Child quote and created this with glitter stickers and paper from Paper Source. This one is a keeper, I think!
3. calligraphy “Ellie”—This was my place card at a friend’s wedding last October. The calligraphy is so beautiful and I simply mounted it over this Paper Source paper.
4. “i believe in…”—Inspired by Cupcakes and Cashmere, I wrote my own manifesto and typed it up! I think this will eventually be layered over the zebra paper. See Emily’s here.
5. Let’s just pretend I’m not sharing my terrible art non-skills with everyone. This is just something I painted last week. My first print purchase will be for this frame. 
6. a page from the J. Crew style guide
7. zebra print paper from Paper Source
8. another dog note card from my mom
You can’t tell from this picture but that wall is about 11 ft long and 10 ft high. Now that everything is hung up, I’m thinking that I might add frames moving forward which would accommodate both the prints I have picked out and the filler art that I really like.
